The Wherry Base, Wroxham, Barton House, Hartwell Rd, Wroxham, Norwich NR12 8TL

About the day

Leaving our base, we'll head away from the bustle of Wroxham with a variety of cottages and grand houses on either side. As we leave habitation behind we'll enter Wroxham Broad, a wide expanse of open water enjoyed by pleasure craft and where birdlife can be spotted. The Norfolk Broads Yacht Club enjoys prime position on the banks of Wroxham Broad and it is here that we will stop for a fish and chip supper in the clubhouse. After dinner we sail back to the wherry base at Barton House. 

This sailing will be aboard one of our three wherry yachts: Olive, Norada or White Moth. These surviving wherry yachts were all built by the Wroxham based boatbuilder and designer Ernest Collins. They spent over three decades within his hire fleet, followed by a period of mixed fortunes in private ownership after World War II, before they were reunited in 2012 by the Wherry Yacht Charter Charitable Trust. 

Please park in the Wherry Yacht Charter car park at Barton House, Hartwell Road, Wroxham. NR12 8TL, by 3.45pm.  A crew member will meet you there and walk with you down the path to the wherry moored on the quayside.  

Please advise us of your meal choice at the time of booking: 

Large battered fish fillet, hand-cut chips, mushy peas & homemade tartare sauce.

Or Scampi, hand-cut chips, mushy peas & homemade tartare sauce.

Or the vegetarian option.

Your ticket also includes a glass of wine, beer or soft drink with your meal.

We operate on "wherry time", subject to wind and tide, and so our return time may not always be as advertised.
